Network developments, such as establishing and upgrading powerlines, substations and other network infrastructure are vital for the future of electricity supply.
As part of our commitment to gaining permission to build infrastructure, we participate in public notification periods for projects to ensure the community is given every opportunity to provide feedback. This is part of our formal community consultation process.
This page will provide information on our projects currently undergoing the Public Notification period.
Distribution planning and regulatory consultation reports
The National Electricity Rules (the Rules) governs the operation of the National Energy Market. As a Distribution Network Service Provider, we're governed by these Rules. More information about the Rules can be found at the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) website.
We are required by the Rules to:
- carry out forward planning to identify future network limitations.
- identify potential network and non-network solutions to address future network limitations.
- select and develop the most appropriate solution following the regulatory investment test applicable to that project.
Our current reports are available to download below. Information on previous approved projects and emerging limitations can be found in the Distribution Annual Planning Report.
To receive notification when new reports or notices are published, you can register for Network planning updates. By registering for this, you'll receive email notifications about our network projects.
